Although the 2020 Ekka was cancelled due to COVID-19 planning is now underway for the 2021 show.
The Young Judges Competition presented by Arrow Energy gives aspiring judges the opportunity to showcase their budding talents.
The competition features seven categories; Stud Beef, Led Steer, Dairy Cattle, Stud Sheep, Dairy Goats, Horses and Poultry.
Entry is FREE and open to people aged 25 years and under, with the competition featuring a Junior Class for under 15 year-olds and a Senior Class for 15 to 25 year-olds.
Despite the cancellation of the 2020 Ekka, the Young Judges Competition was able to run in a modified format as part of Ekka 2020 Online. The young judges were required to view the images and videos below, ranking the animals from 1-4 based on specific criteria and provide a three-minute video outlining their reasoning for the order.
